Q: I know you're politically driven musicians, but where else would you say do you get your passion and inspiration to write? What is your message behind your music? :)
A: The message behind our music would really be about the power of the individual and promoting an individualist and voluntaryist ideology as opposed to ideals that try to group all humanity into a collective or that humanity needs overlords. It's an ancient doctrine that we believe in called the Axiom of Non-Aggression. Some may have heard of this idea quoted as "Do as you will, but harm no one." We take a great deal of inspiration from authors like Ayn Rand and George Orwell, but also more scholarly sources like the writings of economist from the Austrian school of economics. (I.E. Ludwig Von Mises, Murray Rothbard, and Thomas Sowell) We also take a great deal of inspiration from various Horror and Sci-Fi films and books with maybe a little bit of an unhealthy obsession with serial killers. (This ties into our fascination with economics and essentially mob psychology as a whole. I could probably chew your ears off all day about how serial killers are a symptom of State control, but that's a story for another day.) Musically our influences range from Industrial acts like Combichrist, Funker Vogt and Panzer AG; Synth-pop and Power-Pop groups like Depeche Mode and Covenant. I think most artists and musicians take their passion from whatever moves them emotionally. Thus, a great deal of what they write will reflect personal struggles and conflicts they have encountered. Our music tends to be more political as -to a larger degree- as one matures in life and grows past the basic issues of survival and human companionship a larger focus will be placed on the hurdles that prevent you from becoming successful and truly free. Just as a bird will remain weak and never learn to fly so long as it is allowed to stay in the nest, humanity will be forever crippled so long as we try to suckle at the tit of Government or other authoritative organizations for our basic sustenance. Long winded I know, but a complicated question with no short and simple answer. -Jeff.
